Going on retreat offers the precious opportunity to be away from the busyness of London life, surrounded by beautiful countryside and with the benefit of guidance from experienced teachers. Whatever your level of experience it’s an invaluable way of taking your practice deeper. Firstly, we would most recommend the Brixton Sangha Retreats. Going on retreat with people you already know and practice with can be especially conducive to deeper mental states.

Recommended Retreats 2019-2020
We also get asked about other retreats that we would recommend – especially longer retreats. Below you will find a list of recommended retreats, both weekends and longer for all different levels of experience, and in a range of locations (click on the links for more information).
All of these retreats are run by Triratna Buddhist Retreat Centres and are tried and tested by members of our Brixton Sangha. The retreats highlighted in bold are ones that members of Brixton Buddhist Community will be going on.
If you’d like some guidance on what might be most suitable for your level of experience then any of the order members at our classes will be happy to help. For more details of the retreats themselves contact the retreat centres directly, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
